Gearheads will remain gearheads and our society is still churning them out, albeit not at the rate of the near past. Enthusiasts continue to do creative photography - look at the image sharing sites. The question is whether or not the gearheads, enthusiasts, and pros as a group can sustain all of the current camera makers...

Herbert Spencer and Charles Darwin may have some input regarding that.  Camera makers may need to be smarter and offer less of the point and shoot gear (which cell phones are replacing) and focus on the enthusiast/hobbyist and Pros.

Whether he is right or wrong.. it is a very interesting time to be a photographer at any level.

The ability to 'see' the shot is more important than the gear used to capture it.
